An island paradise

Koh Samui is more than a tropical island. It is more than a pin drop on a digital map. It is a place that is alive with an energy that is tangible, experiential and most of all, unforgettable.

Koh Samui is a small island nestled in the Gulf of Thailand, a one hour domestic flight from Bangkok. Serene beaches, lush jungles, pristine turquoise waters and coconut-laden palm trees will take center stage on your instagram feed from the moment you land on the island’s small open-air airport. Koh Samui offers a unique blend of traditional Thai charm and modern indulgence.

Here, you discover an authentic Thailand atmosphere that simultaneously exists alongside extensive shopping, luxurious spas and hotels, world class hospitals and delicious eclectic food options. The combination of natural beauty and vibrant culture is what tends to stay in the hearts of anyone who visits these powdery white shorelines.

However, the island’s allure is not confined to its breathtaking landscapes. It is also experienced in the warm, welcoming smiles of the Thai people and the sense of pure escapism that is perfect for anyone seeking a holistic respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

At Vikasa, it’s easy to immerse yourself in all that Koh Samui has to offer. From sunrise yoga sessions overlooking the expansive ocean, to exploring hidden waterfalls in the heart of the jungle, snorkeling with tropical wildlife in the crystal clear waters, indulging in world-class spa treatments, and exciting your tastebuds with exquisite Thai cuisine, the island feels nothing short of magical.

Here, vibrant living is not just a philosophy, but a way of life. Whether you seek exhilarating adventure, quiet introspection or a combination of both, Koh Samui has something for everyone.

Vikasa is located on Koh Samui, which is an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Vikasa is in the south east corner of the island, in between Chaweng Noi and Lamai. Vikasa is a 20 minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport (USM) and a 35 minute drive from the Nathon and Lipa Noi ferry terminals.

The best way to get to Vikasa is to fly into Koh Samui International Airport (USM).  There are daily flights into Koh Samui from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and others.  We will arrange your pick up from the airport.

This will depend on where you are from. For details of Thailand’s visa arrangements with specific countries see here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Thailand

Although tourist visas are generally required, there is an exemption for travellers from 30 countries (Australia, UK, USA, France, Germany, Sweden and others) who wish to travel to Thailand for 30 days or less. If you are a citizen of one of these countries you do not need to obtain a visa. Note that if you plan to stay for longer than 30 days, it is possible to obtain a short extension from the immigration office on Koh Samui at some point during your stay.

If you are not a citizen of one of the countries with which Thailand has specific visa exemption or waiver arrangements, you will need to obtain a 30, 60 or 90 day tourist visa before arriving in Thailand

Yoga clothes, tropical climate clothes and swimwear.  Yoga mats and props and towels are all provided. You may want to add an excursion to your program such as a waterfall hike, in which case a pair of sneakers would also be handy. 

Koh Samui is a beautiful tropical island located in the Gulf of Thailand.  It is approximately 90 minutes from the mainland via ferry, but is easily accessible via airplane.  It has a population of around 70,000 people and has key infrastructure such as a small international airport, good medical facilities (including hospitals), banking facilities (including ATMs), good wifi coverage and good roads.  It is possible to drive around the entire island in around 90 minutes, and visitors generally either travel via scooter or taxi as walking is difficult.  Vikasa is located between Chaweng Noi and Lamai in a quiet area of the island.  It is possible to walk from Vikasa to nearby beaches, but guests generally stay on the Vikasa premises or rent scooters or taxis for trips to nearby markets and shopping malls.  The weather is generally hot year round, with temperatures often around 30 degrees celsius.
